Switch from Assurance Wireless to Qlink?
You can switch to a new Lifeline provider every three months if you aren’t satisfied with your primary provider’s services. You should:
- Contact your Assurance Wireless and ask them for a transfer of service. You should fill out a new application, provide proof of eligibility, and request a change form.
- Next, wait for a response. Assurance Wireless will inform you once they have received your application.
- Assurance Wireless will disconnect you from their services and transfer you to Qlink.
- Next, you’ll need to log in to NLAD (the National Lifeline Accountability Database) and select “Transfer NLAD Benefit.” Fill out the required information and click “Transfer Benefit.”
- You should then confirm whether your want to transfer your phone services to a secondary provider. Assurance Wireless will stop providing services once the transfer is complete.
- Note: You shouldn’t benefit from multiple Lifeline Providers simultaneously. You must agree that you don’t receive services from various providers, and failure to do this may cause you to lose your benefits.
Your new company will require you to provide documentation to process your request. Information you’ll have to provide includes:
- Your name
- Date of birth
- Physical address
- Phone number
- Written or verbal consent to change Lifeline providers
- Your Social Security Number’s last four digits
- And ensure your household has one lifeline plan
You should research your new provider (Qlink) to determine whether they offer better services than Assurance Wireless. Be sure to provide all essential information, including your third-party verification and proof of financial eligibility. There’s no guarantee that there’ll be no service break during your transfer process.
How to Transfer Your Lifeline Benefit from Assurance Wireless to Qlink
A benefit transfer is when one lifeline provider transfers an active subscriber’s lifeline program benefit to another. The active subscriber should request the transfer for it to be successful. The service provider should obtain properly documented consent from the subscriber before initiating a benefit transfer in NLAD.
You should contact Assurance Wireless to transfer your lifeline benefits to Qlink. Assurance Wireless will send you a form to fill out, review your eligibility, and send you electronic or paper consent. As mentioned earlier, you’ll have to reapply before Qlink can transfer your benefits from Assurance Wireless.
Your affirmative consent should prove the following:
- Your consent that you’ll lose your lifeline program benefits with assurance once the transfer is complete.
- An acknowledgment with Qlink to explain that you can not receive multiple lifeline program benefits with different or the same service provider.
They’ll keep your records or affirmative consent according to the FCC’s record retention rules. If the process is successful, NLAD will:
- De-enroll you from Assurance Wireless and label you as de-enrolled due to the benefit transfer.
- Enroll you to Qlink and label you as such due to benefit transfer.
- Notify both service providers of the change.
You’ll stay with your primary service provider if the transfer fails.
